SHADDONGATE MILL Cotton factory built 1835 - 36 for Peter Dixon; Cotton spinners ; the firm of Peter Dixon and Sons was founded by Peter Dixon the elder. He was born on 23rd October 1753 in Whitehaven. In 1807 Peter moved to the Langthwaite Mill, Warwick Bridge, which had been built by three of his wife’s brothers in 1791. In 1809 Peter’s sons Peter and John joined their father in the Langthwaite Mill and the business became known as Peter Dixon and Sons. By the 1830s the Langthwaite Mill was inadequate for the increasing volume of work the company was doing. The business was already using warehouses in Fisher Street and West Tower Street in Carlisle so it seemed logical to build a new mill on the west of the city. in 1834 Shaddongate was selected. It was near the Canal Basin for cotton to come by ship from Liverpool and for finished cloth to be exported and close to the Newcastle and Carlisle Railway for coal supplies. Richard Tattersall, a Manchester architect, was contracted to design and superintend the construction of a mill ‘to rival all the glories of Manchester and other places’. In February 1835 the foundation stone of the new mill was laid and on September 11th the foundation stone for the chimney was laid and the first brick was laid on 17th September by Richard Wright. Built in red sandstone the mill remains largely intact. The seven storey stone building [including the power transmission house] was 224ft 6 inches long with 22 bays by 56 feet 6 inches, three aisles, wide. The floors were heated by steam and well ventilated and each floor had a toilet and wash basin for the work force [CJ 03.12.1836]. The most significant structural feature of the mill was its fireproof construction. This comprised a cast-iron frame of two rows of 21 cast -iron columns clamps at the upper end by 66 longtitudinal beams and 42 transverse wrought iron ties. A shallow firebrick vault spanned each aisles.Documentary evidence indicates that the Manchester engineer William Fairbairn was involved in the design of the cast-iron structure at the heart of the Shaddon Mill. The mill is the earliest surviving example of a fireproof mill built using Hodgkinson cast-iron beam design promoted by 19th century Manchester engineer William Fairbairn.The three pitched roofs were supported by 60 wooden king post trusses built from Baltic pine. On the seventh floor upon the tie beams to bays 7,8,9,and 15 were markingsthat may well be associated with the Baltic timber ttrade of the late 18th and early 19th century.The floor tiles were stamped R.Ashton and Co, Buckley. At the western end of the mill was the seven storey, four bay, power transmission house. At the west end of this was the four storey engine house. The engine house contained two 80hp condensing beam engines built by Rothwell and Co of Bolton. At the west end of the engine house was the two storey boiler house. The boiler house contained four 8 ton boilers also supplied by Rothwell [CJ 03.12.1836] and were towed here on a barge from Liverpool to Port Carlisle and were installed during April and May [CJ 28.05.1836]. The tapered chimney at 305 feet high was believed to be the tallest structure in the world at the time. Mr Burgess of Water Street Foundry constructed a gas works to supply gas to the mill ‘which was nearly as large as the present Carlisle gas works’ [CJ 09.07.1836]. No exact figures survive for the cost of the whole complex but the City Council estimated in 1836 that it could be no less than 150,000 pounds [CJ 14.05.1836] . In 1847 it was estimated that the firm employed around 8,000 hands, although only around 700 were working at the Shaddongate Mill, many being handloom weavers. By the early 1860s the firm reached its peak. The American Civil War cut off cotton supplies. ‘The Carlisle cotton mills had been very reliant on the American market, since the plantation owners regularly place large orders for ginghams to clothe their slaves and to save expense seldom required the pattern to be changed from one order to the next. The emanicpated Negro naturally demanded a choice and it has been suggested that the golden age of cotton spinning in Carlisle ended when the Carlisle manufacturers failed to adept to the new world’. In 1871 the firm announced that it would stop using hand-loom weavers. About 600 new power looms were installed at Shaddon Mill and a further 229 at Peter Street. However the Carlisle Journal of 12.07.1872 reported that the firm was convening a meeting with a view to going into liquidation. The Carlisle Journal of 02.08.1872 announced there was a deficiency of 66,547pounds 6s 1d. The Carlisle Journal of 03.12.1872 reported that a joint stock company under the title of Peter Dixon and Sons Ltd was being formed. In February 1883 this firm had also passed into liquidation. Taken over by Robert Todd and Son in 1882

SHEEHAN CRESCENT So named after council member Dr Gerald Sheehan

G.Smith’s 1746 map of Carlisle shows that this area was called Willy Holm and access to it was only possible through Irishgate, over the Caldew, Little Caldew then right onto what is known today as the ‘Sheepmount’ ;The Royal Agricultural Show was held in Carlisle in 1880. The Show spread across Bitts Park and two bridges were built to allow it to overspill onto the Sheepmount. These were temporary bridges, one of which was later rebuilt and strengthened in a different location, this being the bridge we can see today. The new bridge allowed the Corporation to tip rubbish here from the 1890s. The Carlisle Journal in 1915 reported that 'Ashes and other refuse from the houses in Carlisle have for several years past been put to good use in building an embankment around the Eden' Rare Victorian and Edwardian bottles still turn up in the river embankment.This area was originally known as Willowholme, the name Sheepmount being probably a 19th century appellation, no doubt referring to sheep being grazed here. Anciently this area was owned by the Duke of Devonshire as part of the socage lands of Carlisle. In 1899 the local newspaper reported that there were 'sprinters' who used the Sheepmount footpaths along the railwayside and they were even to be seen running half naked, which was very objectionable where ladies were supposed to go. Dogs were trained to take rabbits and on Sunday afternoons there was a great deal of gambling along the railwayside, pitch and toss
